Harriers in the money on the roads

A number of Harriers are a little wealthier after taking a share of the winnings in a range of road races recently.

David Green maintained his 100% record in the Northants Road Running League with an excellent victory at the Wellingborough 5. KTH also took the trophies for second team, just one point behind Rugby & Northampton. Jonny Goringe, Phil West and Matt Smith completed the quartet.

Five days later, Jonny took advantage of Dave's absence to take full league points in the Blisworth 5. He was second in the race itself, behind an astonishingly fast runner from Bedford. Making a rare, but very welcome, appearance in the Harriers' colours was Helen Rollins, who was second lady to finish.

Several of the middle distance squad completed the 5 race Peterborough 5K series, where the three best events were counted. Tabatha Walford and Josh Coles both won their series outright, with Kayli Walford sharing joint first, and Jack Hope also sharing joint second place.

Tabbs was in excellent form in the U13 Girls 3k series winning 3 races and coming runner up in the fourth. Josh Coles was equally impressive winning two races and coming second in his third race of the series. Kayli Walford also had two firsts and a second to her name, but had to settle with sharing her win along with Nene Valley Harrier Paige Lambert. Jack Hope, ever consistent, finished joint second with with NVH Billy Mugnier with a win and two second places. Danielle Gaskell, still an U11, also ran well for fourth place in the series with a second, third and fourth.
